Navy Research Lab whistleblower Kiki Ikossi won the right for federal employees to pursue “mixed case” whistleblowers claims under the Whistleblower Protection Act. Ikossi v. England, 406 F. Supp. 2d 23. (D.D.C. 2005).
This decision, together with two prior Court of Appeals decisions, Butler v. West and Evano v. Reno, form a trilogy of cases that produce a roadmap that should enable federal employees the right to join a federal Whistleblower Protection Act claim together with a Title VII discrimination claim and proceed to federal court on the entire claim in federal district court when the agency fails to issue a final administrative decision within 120 days.
